City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare Review

Publicado por Paulina J. en 19:00
Title: City of Heavenly Fire
Series: The Mortal Instruments #6
Author: Cassandra Clare
Date Published: May 27th 2014                                   Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

I've always said that this series should have ended in the third book, this one only seemed to be used to introduce the characters for the next series, I seriously skipped many parts that featured Emma Castairs and the Blackthorne siblings.

The main issue is that the author promised  me the most heartbreaking happy ending but the ending wasn't really all that sad compared to other sad endings I've read.

There was a lot of build up for who Magnus' father was and I honestly expecting Lucifer himself but we got the Prince of Hell Asmodeus felt like  a cartoon character instead of the Prince of Hell

The fact that Izzy took away Simon's chance for a normal life with his family just so she could date him really bothered me, she wasn't even sure if she liked him that much and Simon was clearly affected by his family's rejection of him and she took his second chance of having them in his life.

I have to admit that Maia's decision of not getting back together with Jordan, he physically abused her and it was great that she forgave him but didn't give him a second chance.

All the characters that died weren't very important to the story and their deaths were kind of a meh moment for me.

I  feel that it needs to be repeated that this should have ended three books ago and that half of this book was blatant promotion for her next book series,
